Thrive+ is a patented formula, a capsule, to help reduce alcohol’s negative health effects. It’s made with milk thistle, ginger root, nopal (picked pear), vitamin B, C and E, electrolytes and other natural ingredients. Thrive+ recommends that you take three tablets before going to bed. If you’re prone to hangovers or are a big person, you may want to take four tablets. The founder of Thrive+ (which is trademarked), Brooks Powell from Kingwood, Texas, started the company in his dorm room at Princeton University and continued to build his business through support from the university’s Keller Center with the eLab Incubator and Summer Accelerator programs. Now Powell is pitching his business on Shark Tank (February 26). All of the Sharks will look closely at the ingredients. Guest Shark Bethenny Frankel of Skinny Girl cocktails and food puts her eyeglasses on to check the label.
One week prior to the airing of the Shark Tank episode, Thrive+ asked its customers on social media to write Amazon reviews. “We know how important having a highly rated product on Amazon.com is, especially if people are searching for the product after watching Shark Tank!” And for those customers who weren’t 5-star satisfied with Thrive+, the company is offering a full refund (see post below). The post was effective: there are currently more than 100 5-star reviews on Amazon. One bottle of Thrive+ includes 30 capsules and is available on Amazon for $34.99 (see link above) where you can also get the full Hangover Kit. New episodes of Shark Tank air Sundays at 10pm on ABC.
